We're getting closer!  

Thank you for all the support, but we still have a ways to go!  Please help us spread the word and  help back this album! kck.st/2sOpvsz #kickstarter 

While growing up in the 80’s my imagination was captured both by records of all kinds and the fantastic worlds portrayed in Science Fiction films and underground comic books. 
I tried to recapture those early feelings of imagination and wonder. 

My inspirations for this recording are early Fusion, Krautrock, Dub Reggae, the films of Alejandro Jodorowsky and Stanley Kubrick, and the images of Chris Foss, Moebius and H.R. Giger. 

The musicians were shown images by the aforementioned artists as well as sheet music to prepare for recording. Drawing from non-musical sources helped infuse the album with a unique palette of sonic colors. Along with my usual vintage keyboard instruments (Hammond organ, acoustic and electric pianos, Clavinet), there is an increased use of synthesizers and electronic effects.

 

New Album 'Spacesuit'  

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/192787035/spacesuit-by-robert-walter-new-studio-album# 

Hello everyone. I'm just finishing up work on a new album called Spacesuit. It was recorded in New Orleans with Simon Lott, Victor Little, Chris Alford and special guest Mike Dillon. The music was influenced by 70's science fiction, krautrock, dub and early fusion along with my usual jazz and funk. It's my favorite thing I have made and I'm very excited to let people hear it. This is truly a labor of love, but I need your help to get it done. I've started a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Check out the link for more information about the project. Please donate if you can (there are some cool rewards, too), and share if you know anyone who might be interested in this music. Thanks.
